It has now been confirmed that two adults and two teenagers have been charged with the murder of Pop Smoke, five months after his death.
Last week, five people were arrested surrounding the murder of Pop Smoke that happened earlier this year on the 19th of February. The rising star was murdered during a home invasion robbery at the age of 20 years-old.
Following on from the five arrests made last week, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office has confirmed that four out of the five arrests have been charged with murder. Two adult men, Corey Walker (19) and Keandre Rodgers (18), have been charged with murder and if are convicted, will face life in prison without the possibility of parole or the death penalty.
The D.A.’s Office have also charged two teenage males, aged 17 and 15, with one count of murder and robbery – due to their age, their names cannot be released. The fifth man arrested, 21-year-old Jaquan Murphy, was booked for attempted murder but has not been included in the press release.
Pop Smoke’s posthumous album Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon has debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart, selling the equivalent of 251,000 album units in the U.S in it’s first week – incredible!
